Does getting lost in the mountains with just you and your bike sound like an adventure you desperately crave? Then it’s best you start packing that never-ending list of gadgets. A GPS tracker, cellphone, camera and night light are just some of the items you’ll need – that’s only if you don’t own Land Rover’s Explore Outdoor Phone!

This all-in-one phone comes with mind-blowing features that include consolidating all your gadgets into one device, being waterproof and having a long-lasting battery life. The device is made to empower explorers in the outdoors, and thanks to a special deal reducing the price, every cyclist can now experience the benefits of the Land Rover Explore Outdoor Phone.

Volunteer Wildfire Services (VWS) firefighter, Norman McFarlane, used the Land Rover Explore phone during a night training hike earlier this year. The VWS has been combating dangerous wildfires in the Cape for 20 years, so having the right equipment is essential for the team. McFarlane found the features to be of great assistance on the hike. “Using ViewRanger feature on the Land Rover Explore Phone, with its excellent full GPS capability when using the Adventure Pack, allowed me to download hi-res satellite images before the [training] hike.”

“I plotted the entire route beforehand, and the hi-res satellite images allowed the crew to navigate safely through very steep, sometimes confusing terrain.” He says that the ViewRanger with its Augmented Reality Skyline feature kept them away from a dangerous section at the top of the slope, by suggesting a safer line.”
